Hey there, I’m here for Food Diary Week 2! I have to be honest, I have misgivings about my first food diary post. I ended up getting pretty hungry later that night and realized I should have eaten more food that day. I never want to suggest or in any way encourage a severe restriction of calories. Please keep in mind that I am very petite and may need less calories than other builds and activity levels. I’m always going to be honest in my documentation and that was a day where I got busy and immersed in what I was doing and just didn’t nourish myself as well as I should have!
So, here’s this past Saturday. I worked 7:30-3, received a massage from 3-4, and coached a client from 4:30-5:30. I did a 15 minute body strength workout in the evening.
Breakfast: Phase 1 at 7:30 a.m.; Phase 2 at 10:30 a.m.
I often grab Starbucks on Saturday mornings when I open the clinic, and I love their new sous vide egg bites! These are grain-free and had spinach and roasted veggies in them. A few hours later, I had a Paleo banana-chocolate chip muffin and some tea. My friend Kelsi made the muffin and it was so good; she’s a great baker! My love language is Paleo baked goods!
Lunch: 1:45 p.m.
I headed over to Mama Jeans Natural Foods Market and picked up a “Paleo lunchbox” with turkey zucchini meatballs, tzatziki sauce, cherry tomatoes and artichoke hearts, and assorted nuts. I paired it with their broccoli salad. Look at the pretty colors! Want to make your own Paleo tzatziki sauce? Seriously, I would dip anything in this stuff.
Dinner: 6:45 p.m.
Finally, something I made with my own two hands! I had panang curry for dinner…and that “rice” you see is actually riced cauliflower. If you haven’t made something involving a curry-coconut milk base then I am sad for you. Try it and be comforted 🙂
I don’t remember if I had dessert Saturday night, I’m going to guess no since I had the chocolate chip breakfast muffin! But if I did, it would have been a couple of squares of dark chocolate. I’m also sure I had a few La Croix sparkling waters, and my tea was Jade Citrus Mint from Starbucks, which is a lovely green tea.
